New York artist Richard Clarkson gives a whole new meaning to “the cloud.” His cloud is a lamp and speaker system that mimics a thundercloud.
The cloud is motion activated and can play the music of the owner’s choice, while, of course, mimicking thunder and lightning. The tag line for Clarkson’s art is “harmonious contradictions and unapologetic curiosity.”
This finished portrait looks like a black and white charcoal drawing. But it’s made of thousands of verses of poetry.
And here’s a close up of one of his pieces. His work is a fascinating bled of portraiture, typography and collage.
The blend of portraiture and music adds an additional element of interest.
Iris’s work includes collages done with old audio tapes, too. You can see them on her site.
